Palmerton Loop Aquashicola Creek

Project Location Date
Palmerton Loop Aquashicola Creek Monroe Co., Saylorsburg, Pa. 06/12/2013

Laney used the Direct Pipe trenchless method to install 1,350 linear feet of 42-inch diameter steel pipe to cross Aquashicola Creek in Monroe County, PA. The crossing was in a conservation wetlands easement considered a habitat for bog turtles, a critically endangered species. Use of Direct Pipe technology was necessary because of recognized environmental, geological and topographical concerns. Laney’s engineering division provided a feasibility analysis and initial design oversight. Laney also handled construction services for the Direct Pipe crossing.
